TECH TIP ON ENGINE ROTATION

WHAT IS MY ENGINE ROTATION?

Engine rotation is determined by the direction of the flywheel.

Most I/O engines are LEFT HAND rotation. Do not rely on the rotation of the propeller rotation to determine the engine rotation. 

 

LEFT HAND ROTATION

If the flywheel turns counter-clockwise:

Flywheel Counter-Clockwise

Belts turn clockwise.

Belts Clockwise

This is standard rotation.

 

RIGHT HAND ROTATION

If the flywheel turns clockwise:

Belts turn counter-clockwise.
